Liebster Award

 I accept this award from Tammy.This is what you're supposed to do and answer plus at the end Tammy asked more questions. It's time for a little humor on my blog so in that vein I will do my best to exercise my imagination as a writer and entertain you.

Anyone who wants it CAN TAKE IT!!
Just answer my 11 top notch questions below!

Answer 11 questions, give 11 facts about yourself, nominate and question 11 others. (Okay, I'm breaking the nominate rule.)

1. Do you believe in ghosts/aliens/the supernatural?
As a matter of fact, my husband is an Alien clone. How do I know this? He is an over the road trucker and when he comes home he is nice. Not just nice. He is sweet. A change from the grumpy pessimist that he used to be. To top it off, when his phone rings it sounds like the 'Mother Ship' calling and he always leaves the room to talk. I am sure that the shadow that follows him is the ghost of Jessie James, it looks like a gunslinger anyway and oh yes, I'm psychic. I'll prove it, but just let me check your comment first.

2. Why do you blog?
What? Why do I blog? To keep my sanity of course. With all the above supernatural occurrences I must find a normal somewhere in my life. 

3. What's your favourite season?
Hot pepper is nice...oh wait,  you said season not seasoning.

4. What is your favourite book/series?
LOTR, Narnia, Harry Potter and my own. Okay, this answer is real.

5. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Joy, happiness and the secret to all things alien. I mean the outer space kind not the cross the border kind without permission.

6. Where is your favourite place to relax?
A little known fact is that being transported aboard the Enterprise is very relaxing. There's something about having all your atoms come apart and put back together again. Do you think this might be the new weight loss cure?
7. The best moment of your life so far?
A brilliant rainbow at the end of a Minnesota rainstorm. I've never seen the like since. (True answer this time, it was inspirational.)
8. Do you have any hobbies?
Does inventing strange creatures, make believe people and new worlds count? Or should I be institutionalized?

9. What is your job? Is it what you envisioned yourself doing as a child?
I lived in my imagination as a child so I suspect I'm not so far off from that vision now. (True answer.)
10. Do you play any instruments?
I am self taught on the piano, the dulcimer, the recorder and would love to learn the flute. (True answer.)

11. What's your favourite fairy tale?
Rapunzel...I love the Disney version. Something about all that hair falling out the tower window. I don't think I'd let anyone climb up it though. (True answer.)

These are all true.
1. I'm me and no one else.
2. I'm getting older.
3. I have an entire bowl full of unchecked emotions that like to play havoc with my life.
4. I don't get out much.
5. I get frustrated easily with morons.
6. I take care of my grandson's Beta fish and when I forget to feed it it swims frantically around until I remember.
7. When I was thirty I was carded before the clerk would sell me a Lotto ticket. They don't do that anymore.
8. I once had a dream that a serial killer was going to kill me and when I told him to go ahead he threw the gun down and stormed off. Weird, huh?
9. My husband thinks I'm pretty, I think he needs glasses. I'm right.
10. My friends are great, that means all of you. There are many who pray for me and even more who offer encouragement when I'm down. Still others offer help when it's needed. I love you all.
11. Donations are now being accepted to the 'Save the N.R.W. fund', not really.


These are questions that Tammy asked us to answer. You can do this too, but you don't have to.  

1. If you could interview one celebrity, who and what is your million dollar question?
I am not impressed with celebrities. If I could ask anyone anything, perhaps J. K. Rowlings, I would want to know how she kept positive when she struggled to feed a new baby, didn't have a job and was writing Harry Potter. 
2. Did you ever carry a pager when they were cool?
Pagers were cool? I once had one but it broke a month after I got it and I didn't replace it.

3. What is your fav home decor that you would be mad if I stole?
I painted a picture of a Hummingbird which cannot be replaced. One of these days I'm going to start painting again!

4. Pet peeves?
Really...if you use up all the toilet paper put on a new roll!

5. Fav magazine?
Don't have one.

6. Will you give me $100?
No, sorry Tammy. I don't have any money and what little I do have flies right out the window. So far the money tree I planted several years ago hasn't born any fruit. What can I say?

7. Furthest you've traveled?
Washington D.C. When I was a kid my family took amazing historical trips all over the eastern US.

8. Do these pants make my butt look big?
Really Tammy, you should take the padding out.

9. What radio station is playing in your car as I drive off in it?
A Christian radio station playing a song about the Rapture that you are compelled to try to catch.

10. What are you making me for breakfast because I'm not a morning person?
Must be grilled cheese with onions, tomatoes and smoked turkey, because I'm not much of a cook.
11. How's that $100 coming along?
Just a moment while I check the sofa cushions.

Hope you liked the answers Tammy.

Same rules for you, if you want it, here it is, come and get it. Oh, that's a song. LOL

I needed a really good laugh and I hope you enjoyed my silly answers.
